Grades 6–12. "Anchors aweigh" as design teams work to build a better boat starting with the classic aluminum foil model. Discover whether shape, size, or material (foil, clay, or wood) is the key to success for supporting maximum load. This simple yet challenging lab activity invokes critical thinking and problem solving while reinforcing engineering, buoyancy, and density principles. Materials support 15 design teams.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I thought for Middle School I purchased this kit as part of a set of STEM kits. I didn't think it would go over as well with my Middle School STEM club but decided to use it first and then go on to "more exciting" projects. They absolutely loved it! We had to extend over two weeks as they took longer with the warm up activity as they started to explore. I thought for sure the second week would have a lot of down time, but again it took longer than I thought as their creativity in engineering really shined. Would definitely do this one again!
